Salceda charged for alleged failure to file SALN

LEGAZPI CITY—Anti-crime watchdog Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption filed a complaint at the Office of the Ombudsman against Albay Gov. Joey Salceda for his alleged failure to file his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth (SALN).


VACC Chairman Martin Diño, who filed the complaint, claimed that Salceda’s SALN for the years 2012, 2013, and 2014 could not be located at the Office of the Ombudsman by the graft investigation and prosecution officer.

Diño said it was likely that this meant the governor did not file his SALN for the aforementioned years.

Said failure violates Republic Act 6713, or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

Salceda, for his part, denied the alleged failure and said that he did file the documents.

He stated: “Since 2007, I have dutifully filed my SALN with the Albay PHRMO in accordance with CSC MC No. 3, s. 2015, as amended. And in accordance with the same CSC MC, the PHRMO then submitted / transmitted these SALNs via ‘registered mail’ to the Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon per instruction of the Office of the Ombudsman. These are shown in the attached copies of the SALNs and registered mail official receipts.”

He added that VACC’s charge was malicious and had no basis.

This is the second complaint lodged against the Albay governor by VACC this year.

The first complaint stemmed from a P47-million allotment that was allegedly illegally used to aid evacuees during the 2009 Mayon Volcano eruption.

Just last month, VACC urged the Ombudsman to expedite the resolution of the earlier complaint against the incumbent governor.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM. Pirming enot. Pirming bago.
